Tidal Wave Scholarship Fund

Tidal Wave Scholarship Fund
Deadline: May 15, 2012

This fund has been created to provide gay and lesbian degree-seeking students with partial tuition fees for their collegiate-level classes.

These $1000 scholarships are one-time distributions but re-application is allowed for up to four years of undergraduate study. Scholarships are open for consideration to graduating high school seniors and to returning collegiate students up to age 23.

Award selection is based on academic credentials, with at least a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale; an essay on how they feel their out-and-proud lifestyle will produce a positive effect in their future careers and endeavors; and two letters of recommendation. Final candidates may be required to participate in a short interview.
